I love superhero movies. They hold a special place in my heart because I have been watching them since I was a little kid. I remember staring at the TV screen with wonder and awe as I saw these heroes fighting for what they believed in. This made me feel strong and empowered, like anything was possible, as I would see time and time again these heroes overcoming obstacles life had thrown their way. Although I feel like superhero movies hold a lot of value; sadly, not a lot of superhero movies are well known outside of the Marvel and DC universes. This is why I wanted to share some of my favorite underrated superhero movies.

Glass

Criminally insane mastermind Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), also known as Mr. Glass, helps David Dunn (Bruce Willis) to discover that he has superpowers in ‘Unbreakable.’ ‘Glass’ picks up 18 years after ‘Unbreakable,’ Dunn, who is incapable of being harmed with the exception of water, now goes on “walks” where he punishes people for the wrongs that they have committed.

After going on one of his walks, he finds David Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) who is a disturbed man. The two end up fighting and are placed in a mental facility with none other than Mr. Glass himself. The three are under the care of Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson), whose goal is to break them of the illusion that they are superheroes.

The lives of these characters are perfectly intertwined in this movie. We get to see the villain, superhero, and mastermind all come together. Through their developing relationships, we learn more about what made these characters into who they are, with shocking twists.

This movie ultimately feels grounded in reality, as these characters aren’t praised or celebrated for believing they are superheroes. They are instead treated how anyone would be in today’s world if they announced that they were a superhero. As a result, each of the characters doubt whether they actually are superheroes.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) falls in love with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) as soon as he locks eyes with her. Unfortunately for Pilgrim, Flowers has some baggage: her evil exes won’t allow her date anyone until they are all defeated.

This movie is an amazing video game-themed movie. With epic fight scenes between Pilgrim and Flowers’ exes, the fights are stylized to look like they came straight out the comic books they are based on, complete with onomatopoeia,displaying words such as “kerpow.”

This movie had me dying laughing because the fight scenes take on a more lighthearted and less serious approach. They have jokes and gags in every duel. For instance, when Pilgrim is fighting Flowers’ ex (Todd the Vegan), Todd casually explains to Pilgrim’s friends why being vegan makes him better than everyone else as they wait for him to fall back to the ground after being punched into the sky. Even the insults the two share are hilarious, as Todd tells Pilgrim, “Tell it to the cleaning lady on Monday.”

Overall, I would highly recommend that you go see this movie. It is fun, it is action packed, and it is currently on Netflix.

Don’t be fooled by the dorky poster, ‘Sky High’ is a fun movie for all ages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sky High

Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is just your average teenager, but that’s the problem. As the son of two of the greatest superheroes in the world (The Commander and Jetstream), Stronghold is expected to have amazing superpowers of his own.

I saw myself in Stronghold as he struggled to figure out who was, while trying to live up to his parents’ expectations of him.

Although this is a kids’ movie, it has great message: it doesn’t matter what others think about you; anyone has the potential to be a hero.
